  • You have a PITA I have a ZOEY, I was cleaning out a flower bed the other day and moved some plants. Went into the house for a few minutes and came out to find my newly planted plants dug up and scattered around the back yard. Luckily I was able to save them.

    I learned last year not to let her see me planting bulbs, she must have thought they were balls and fair game for the taking.

  • I guess it is hard for then to understand why we can dig in the soft dirt, yet they get in trouble for it.

    I thought sure PITA would rip and tear some plastic I put down to smother weeds, but so far she has done nothing more than walk on it. Could she be getting better?

    Nah, she just has not found out how much fun she can have pulling that plastic all around the yard.

  • Could there be a book in Pita's future? She sure does have a lot of entertaining stories, that most every dog lover would get a giggle reading.

  • My youngest cat has always had trouble with the phrase flower BEDS.

    She seems to have taken that to mean that all flora need to be transplanted to our pillows or under the covers.

    This includes seedlings,potted trees and anything else that can be uprooted intact by a three pound

    gardening "gatita".

    Our other gals ignore plants except for grass,cat mints,tc.
